Prof. Anne-Marie Caminade

Prof. Anne-Marie Caminade

University of Toulouse, France

Anne-Marie Caminade is Director of Research Exceptional Class at the CNRS, and the head of the “Dendrimers and Heterochemistry” group at the LCC-Toulouse (France). After two PhDs in Toulouse and two Post-docs (IFP-Paris and Von Humboldt fellow in Saarbrücken), she holds a CNRS researcher position since 1985. She developed several aspects of phosphorus chemistry. Her current research interest is on dendrimers (hyperbranched nanomolecules), in particular on their use as catalysts, for nanomaterials and for biology/nanomedicine. She is the co-author of about 445 publications, 50 book chapters, 2 books,  and 30 patents (h index 61).

Prof. Clara Viñas

Prof. Clara Viñas

Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona, Spain

Prof. Clara Viñas has dedicated work at industry (1984-1985), at public institutions being the head of Municipal Laboratory of Sabadell City (1985-1991) involved on chemical-bromatological analysis of food and environmental control, and at academia at the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) from 1991. She is a Full Professor at the ICMAB-CSIC since 2006.

She has published 25 book chapters with ISBN, a chapter for “Science of Synthesis” Encyclopedia and over 312 original scientific papers in peer refereed journals included in the SCI (h= 46). She has been supervisor of 12 Master degrees (2 were distinguished by the Catalan Society of Chemistry with “Sant Jordi” Award) and 11 Doctoral Thesis (3 were distinguished by the U.A.B. with the Extraordinary Yearly Prize). She pioneered the EUROBORON conferences and co-chaired EUROBORON I, HALCHEM IV, IMEBORON XIII and ZING Conference on “Medicinal Chemistry of Boron Compounds Conference”. She has led competitively funded research Spanish projects and participated in European, Catalonian and industry ones. She is co-author of 6 patents (1 European, 1 USA, 1 China and 3 British). She commonly acts as reviewer of SCI journals and Funding agencies.

The focus of her scientific activity is in the chemistry of boron clusters. Her research interests are in the synthesis of novel icosahedral boron clusters to be used in biosensors, in potentiometric sensors, to generate non-conventional surfactants, new homogeneous catalysts based on metallacarboranylphosphines or metallacarboranylthioethers, gold and magnetic NPs capped with carboranylmonothiol and carboranylphosphinic acids, carboranyl iodinated compounds and high Boron containing molecules for medicinal applications as radioimaging / radiotherapy and Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT).rk at industry (1984-1985), at public institutions being the head of Municipal Laboratory of Sabadell City (1985-1991) involved on chemical-bromatological analysis of food and environmental control, and at academia at the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) from 1991. She is a Full Professor at the ICMAB-CSIC since 2006.

Prof. Evamarie Hey-Hawkins

Prof. Evamarie Hey-Hawkins

Leipzig University, Germany

Evamarie Hey-Hawkins has been a Full Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at Leipzig University, Germany, since 1993. She received her diploma (1982) and doctoral degree (1983) at the University of Marburg, Germany. After stays at the University of Sussex, UK (1984/85), the University of Western Australia (1985/86) and the ANU, Canberra, Australia (1986/87), she completed her habilitation in Marburg (1988). From 1988-1990 she was a Research Associate at the MPI for Solid State Research, Stuttgart.

In 2013, she was awarded the degree of “Distinguished Woman in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering” by IUPAC. She is also the recipient of the Elhuyar-Goldschmidt Lecture Award (2015) and the Costin Nenitzescu-Rudolf Criegee Lecture Award (2016). She was honoured with two honorary doctoral degrees (Dr. h.c.), by BabeşBolyai University, Romania (2014) and Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje, Macedonia (2016). In 2016, the Romanian Chemical Society (SChR) honoured her with the Costin Neniţescu Medal.

Since 2007, she has been the Speaker of the Graduate School “Building with Molecules and Nano-objects (BuildMoNa)” (www.buildmona.de). Since 2013, she is chairing the COST Action “Smart Inorganic Polymers” (CM1302, SIPs, www.sips-cost.org).

Her scientific interests are in the field of organophosphorus chemistry, biologically active boron compounds, heterometallic transition metal complexes and catalysis. She has authored more than 430 publications in refereed journals.
